Monoclonal Antibody ; lyophilized
Matrix metalloproteinase-17; Membrane-type matrix metalloproteinase 4, Membrane-type-4 matrix metalloproteinase
This antibody was produced from a hybridoma (mouse myeloma fused with spleen cells from a mouse immunized with recombinant human MMP-17. The IgG fraction of culture supernatant was purified by Protein G affinity chromatography and lyophilized.
Recombinant human MMP-17
Lyophilized samples are stable for 2 years from date of receipt when stored at -70 °C. Reconstituted antibody can be aliquoted and stored frozen at < -20 °C for at least for six months without detectable loss of activity.
Reconstitute the antibody with 500 µl sterile PBS and the final concentration is 200 µg/ml.
Proteins of the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) family are involved in the breakdown of extracellular matrix in normal physiological processes, such as embryonic development, reproduction, and tissue remodeling, as well as in disease processes, such as arthritis and metastasis. Most MMP's are secreted as inactive proproteins which are activated when cleaved by extracellular proteinases. The protein encoded by this gene is considered a member of the membrane-type MMP (MT-MMP) subfamily. However, this protein is unique among the MT-MMP's in that it is a GPI-anchored protein rather than a transmembrane protein. The protein activates MMP-2 by cleavage and is known to be expressed in brain, leukocytes, colon, ovary testis and breast cancer as well as in many transformed and non-transformed cell types. The protein exists in two isoforms: a GPI-anchored form and a second secreted form.
